At Traill we believe that students do not just learn in the classroom but benefit from new experiences outside the school. As such, field trips to enhance and support learning take place within and across subject areas. For example, students studying Thai Language and Thai Culture are taken to Ayudhaya, the old capital, to really get a feel for its historical significance. Whilst there, they may also sketch the magnificent ruins and develop these drawings later in their Art lessons.

In addition, once a year all Secondary Students have the opportunity to go on a Residential Trip, usually for about 4 days 3 nights. In January 2008 they went to Pa Ngam Adventure Resort in Prachinburi. It was chosen for its high attention to safety, breathtaking location in the hills, friendly atmosphere and very good all- round facilities. Some of the aims of the Residential Trip are: to build team and communication skills, build self-confidence and self-esteem, etc. This year’s trip was extremely successful as can be seen from the photos and comments on our traill blog site.

Furthermore, at the end of term three, all the students are involved in Activities Week which is considered a “Week without Walls”. This began last year and because of its success has been kept on the calendar. During Activities Week, teachers work together to offer a timetable of fun activities inside and outside school. The cooking lessons (Thai, Japanese, Indian) in school proved a big hit last year and will be included again. The trip to the Science Museum and Dream World was also popular, as was the chance for the better swimmers to go on a Scuba Diving Trip to Koh Tao,always a firm favorite with the older students.

Finally, probably the most important and unselfish field trip of the year is to Phitsanulok where students work painting walls, building the library etc. Materials are bought out of the money raised through the Charity Events organised by Traill students throughout the year. This year they will also donate books and computers to the village school.
